I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Following up on last weeks 40-2 trouncing of Indiana, the Buckeyes played their last game of the season at home against Northewestern and came away with a 48-7 victory. We were out most of the day and didn’t get to watch the game, again, but this pretty much sums it up:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A.J. Hawk got his career at Ohio Stadium going with a touchdown, then said goodbye to a home crowd of 105,00 the same way.

Troy Smith ran for two touchdowns and Hawk returned a blocked punt for another score to lead 10th-ranked Ohio State to a 48-7 victory over No. 25 Northwestern on Saturday, the Buckeyes’ fifth consecutive win.

“I’ve been coaching football for 30 years,” Northwestern coach Randy Walker said. “I’ve seen a lot of good football players — but I haven’t seen any better than A.J. Hawk.”

Next week its the annual season finale against Michigan, which will mean a little more for the Buckeyes than the Wolverines this time around:

Ohio State (8-2, 6-1) needs to win Saturday’s annual showdown with rival Michigan to clinch at least a share of the Big Ten title.

Meanwhile, my alma mater was trounced by Louisville 56-5 after losing last week to South Florida 45-31.
